I donated some stuff to the local charity flee market place today and had to go back and check out the bike section. Wow, over the winter folks have been really turning them in! Nothing super cool, but lots of 3spds and older 10 spds. Great place for parts.
Anyway, I saw this one bike with a Stormey-Archer hub, and I've been looking for a shifter chain and adjuster for my winter beater. I give the guy $15.00 (cheaper than I can order the parts) and throw it in the back of the pickup. I get home and really take a look, and this is a pretty cool old ride. Ladies bike, but cool anyway. Hub is an AW, and is dated 1967. I know this is a second rate Raleigh via Sheldon Brown, but it's nifty. Styled fenders, lugged frame, original (and still OK) whitewall tires. Italian seat. Good paint.
Anyway, now I hate to use it for parts! I hit the frame with some Goo-Gone and it's cleaning up nicely. Oh man, I don't need another bike! The wife likes it, but only if I paint it. I kind of like the old scheme. Maybe if I get it gleaming she'll change her mind. Anyway, here you go....
